Hi all, new to the forum and would love some advice. Unfortunately the Dji had a confrontation with a tree and fell rather badly where the gimbal broke away from the main unit. Thankfully the camera is fine but the grey and black cable snapped from the unit. They are still attached(i.e. Not missing) but is this easy to repair / solder to the circuit board or do I need to get new cabling. Thanks in advance Ron

At the least, it looks like you need a new cable pack and gimbal mounting plate. You'd need to open up your Phantom in order to see if anything is broken on the inside.

I don't see those little gray and black cables in the pack. Are they in there? Also do the have a very small end that just kind of snaps in the unit?

FYI, I updated my links above. They were previously pointing to the Advanced/Professional version of those parts.

I believe the gray/black cables are the Wi-F antennas. See this link.

I haven't opened my P3S yet, but you could certainly open yours and check -- since you'll have to open it anyhow to make the repairs.
